Cynthia DePersio

Pastry Chef/Partner

Cynthia began her own career some 38 years ago, when a friend asked her to cater her special dinner party. Catering continued including NYC film companies and Mrs. Merrill of Merrill Lynch. Desiring to see her own recipes in print, she started product recipe development for Best Foods & Lipton, soon moving on to recipe development and writing for Ladies’ Home Journal, Cooking Light, Fitness, and Prevention, co-authoring eight Weight Watchers books, and developing more than 75 recipes for the last Atkins for Life book series, just before his untimely passing. Still enjoying the art of baking, she loves the simplicity of making people happy and continuing the joy restaurants can bring to people.
